Ambassadors for nature are being recruited by A Rocha UK and one of our partners, as interns are sought both for the national team and for a centre in South Wales.
Leading the emerging generation into nurturing ‘wild nature’ will be the challenge for a new Education Intern to work with children across West London. The intern will assist Education Officer David Melville to create engaging activities and prepare fun learning resources.
‘Running environmental encounters, holiday park specials and other events at sites and schools around West London will all be part of the job,’ said David. ‘The intern will help express A Rocha UK’s message of Christian hope for the environment.’
A new volunteer is also needed to help run A Rocha UK’s highly successful award scheme Eco Church. The team member will work from our Southall office one day each week, assisting with some of the day-to-day administrative tasks associated with running Eco Church.
Duties will include responding to enquiries from churches via email and phone, fulfilling requests for information leaflets, and processing applications. ‘We’re a big project run by a small team,’ said Churches and Resources Manager Nigel Hopper. ‘Demands are increasing. So we need a volunteer to help.’
An intern and staff member are needed at St Madoc Centre in South Wales. Part of A Rocha UK’s Partners In Action network, they’re looking for a paid Conservation Officer and voluntary Conservation Development Officer, each to work for two-and-a-half days a week. The two posts could be undertaken by one successful candidate.
A motivated graduate with a conservation background, the Conservation Officer will take the centre’s environmental work into its next phase. The Conservation Development Officer will help the centre move into new forms of income generation and explore potential for providing Christian and environmentally-based activities.
